Shiba Inu Yarn

I was recently contacted by a local person seeking a knitter to knit a scarf out of Shiba Inu fiber that she had saved from her own dogs and had spun.  I was surprised by this request but delighted to do it since I started out my spinning career spinning Bouvier des Fladres fiber.  It is special to have a keep sake from your beloved dogs.  Although not practical since most dog hair has a degree of harshness to it (OK I am a bit of a softness snob since I exclusively spin angora from my rabbits) a dog hair scarf is quite a conversation piece. 

128 yards of Shiba Inu yarn.
The finished product.
